MNCLand.com - PT MNC Land Tbk, held a groundbreaking ceremony to start the construction of Lido Music & Arts Center in MNC Lido City, Greater Jakarta.

As mentioned in the previous release, MNC Lido City has obtained approval from the National Council for Special Economic Zones as Tourism SEZ.
Lido Music & Arts Center, which is wholly owned by KPIG, is built on an area of 5 ha with an amphitheater concept, making it the largest outdoor music and arts festival venue in Indonesia. It is built to accommodate more than 50,000 visitors in one event, this venue can hold 4 events at the same time.
Lido Music & Arts Center will be the main destination for international music and arts festivals in Southeast Asia. Other than music and arts festivals, Lido Music & Arts Center can be utilized for other events such as sports festivals, shows and performances, cultural and social gatherings and others.
